LAST ADDRESS: Rogge addressed the crowd at last night's Closing Ceremony and said, "The organizing committee was supported by the public authorities and did a superb job. Thank you Lord Coe and your great local team. We will never forget the smiles, the kindness and the support of the wonderful volunteers, the much needed heroes of these Games. You, the spectators and the public, provided a soundtrack for these Games. Your enthusiastic cheers energized the competitors and brought a festive spirit to every Olympic venue. You have shown the world the best of British hospitality. I know that generosity of spirit will continue as we marvel at the dedication and talent of the wonderful Paralympic athletes" (NBC, 8/12).
